Text on Fabric

I've been really interested lately about text on fabric. We were discussing this in SurfaceDesign and I would love at some point to learn how to screenprint. But, I don't want to buy a thermofax and invest in new equipment right now. I think when the opportunity presents itself, I may take a silk screening class. In the meantime,Karen mentioned about these great little syringes with a small tip. Here is where I bought my syringes. So, here is my experiment with these. Pretty nifty! And, last week Rayna came to our guild to lecture, so I bought one of her great postcards. It now hangs near my sewing machine. I have been working on this QA door challenge. It's been an uphill battle. I think I am almost there though. I'll post pictures in a few weeks. I think it will take me a couple more weeks to finish it up.

I would love to know what these interesting writing tools are. I can't seem to find a mention on the other blog.
Could you tell us exactly what the name of them is? Thx so much.

These look wonderful. I have had some syringes for a long time and have never gotten around to trying them. Are these your own words or are they from some other source?

Oh those look fantastic. Great colours and the text makes wonderful texture.
Is the syringe hard to use?

Hugs, Alis

These experiments are great Joanna. I'm also interested in this sort of thing. I use my printer for doing them ATM. I will have to buy some of your syringes. What sort of ink is in them. do they come with the ink already in?

Great job with the syringe writing. You are a natural!
Isn't Rayna great? Her workshop is one of the best I've every taken.
